Your best bet is to send it to Uniden for factory certified repair. They may charge a little more than your local electronics shop, but they will use the correct parts and give you a quality repair with a factory warranty. You can contact them here:

Uniden bcd396xt scanning but no sound coming from scanner


BCD386XT No sound. If it is actually stopping on an active broadcast and if you have the volume turned up (press down on volume button and release, then rotate to adjust) then the most likely cause is a failed speaker. Try a set of headphones in the jack on top by the antenna, if you have sound there it is most certainly a bad speaker. It is a very tiny speaker that is as thin as a nickel, many have been broken by a simple jar or by being played too loud by the hearing impaired. It is not hard to change but basic soldering skills are required. the speaker is available from uniden parts.

Tried scanning with my radio, but all i get is white niose all through the band ranges, but i am new to this, can you help?


Make sure you have the squelch setting set correctly and read the manual as the manual is your best friend until you get the hang of operating your Scanner. You can get a copy of your manual at http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/BC92XLTom.pdf

You can also find frequencies for your area at www.radioreference.com

Happy Scanning.

I have a UBC72XLT scanner which I sometimes use with a external roof mounted antenna. Recently while connecting this antenna to the scanner there was a static discharge. The performance is now way down so...


You can contact the Uniden customer service department via email by following this link:
http://www.uniden.com/repair/info.cfm
But the cost of repair will likely exceed the value of your scanner. I routinely see used and refurbished BC72XLT scanners for sale on eBay in the $50 range.

I lost my manual and forgot how to keep the programming in unit. I put in the numbers and when it scans it just shows scanning and not the freq scanned.


Sounds like you need a replacement manual. You can download/print it here:

Uniden UBC72XLT scanner problem.


The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

UNIDEN UBC72XLT, CAN IT PICK UP MILITARY FREQUENCIES?


Do you know what frequencies they use?
This scanner does not cover the 200-400 MHz range, where military planes operate in the United States. If the UK military uses the same band then you probably will not be able to monitor them.

Change from analog to digital


There are digital scanners available, but their use may be limited, depending on what you want to listen to.

A lot of scanning enthusiasts have spent a lot of money, only to discover their new digital scanner is useless.

Many emergency services are on digital BUT, they are also encrypted, so even with a digital scanner, encrypted transmissions cannot be heard.

Before parting with your cash... do some research on what digital signals can be heard in your area, keeping in mind that although some digital services are currently transmitted 'in the clear' there may be plans to encrypt them later.

Hope this helps.

If it just seems to be "stuck" on static, you probably need to adjust the Squelch. Try turning the squelch down until the static stops.
If you haven't programmed any frequencies into the banks, scanning won't do anything. Press "Func" and "Scan" to perform a Search. This way, if you find a frequency with a lot of chatter, you can program it into a bank for scanning later.
The easiest thing to do is to find frequencies for your local police, fire, etc. on the internet & program them into the various banks on the scanner.

Google for local frequencies
